15 Former International Students: Full-Time Employment Rates 6 Months After Completing Australian Degrees by Field Compared to Domestic Students ( ) Qualification Field Australian Graduates (Sample = 371,000) International Students (Sample = 79,000) Accounting 83% 35% Business 76% 40% IT 78% 42% Engineering 86% 44% Medicine 100% 99% Dentistry 94% 96% Pharmacy 98% 96% Physiotherapy 94% 67% Nursing 92% 71%

16 Future - ASEAN Health Workforce Governance Challenges? Australia and New Zealand: Region: Increasing over-production for remittance generation Sector: Driven by private sector colleges (lower entry and achievement standards eg Malaysian medical schools QA: Potentially conflicted QA and regulation strategies Demand: Likely scale of ASEAN + regional demand for mobility/ recognition Trade pressures: Versus research evidence Pathway and source country: Which health workforce migrants? Medical tourism: Outsource health services to cheaper regional providers? Inappropriate pressure? Case study: Nursing
